After £50 a pupil insult, here’s what Boris Johnson spent on his kids’ schooling


Schoolkids have fallen well behind in the pandemic but the Tory education catch-up plan is just £50 extra per pupil.

The Government’s £1.4billon Covid education catch up plan means they’ll be spending just £310 per pupil over the next three years helping kids who have fallen behind.

That’s compared with £1,600 in America and £2,500 in the Netherlands.

Despite Boris Johnson not wanting to spend a decent amount on state school children, it has been a different matter with his own kids.

Johnson has spent hundreds of thousands of pounds educating his own children, while Chancellor Rishi Sunak ’s young daughters are likely to follow in their father’s footsteps and go to one of the country’s most most expensive schools, too.
